So we should take advantage of this rare occurrence and cook Lobster, lots and lots and lots of Lobster...Lobster says celebration, says party, says expensive, says....well you get the picture.....here is the star of the show!

Angel Hair Pasta with Lobster


2 lobster tails
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 cup of finely chopped fresh shallots
1 teaspoon of dried red chilies
3 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 cup white wine
2/3 cup chicken broth
3 to 4 canned Italian tomatoes or fresh Roma tomatoes
1/4 cups of fresh chopped parsley1/4 cups of chopped fresh basil

Shredded asiago cheese..

First boil angel hair pasta until done and set aside....

meanwhile Cut Lobster into bite size pieces (in shell)

Add the cooked, drained angel hair pasta to the pan, add the parsley and basil and toss to mix.  Sprinkle grated Asiago cheese on top,,,Serves two.

here are your two lobster tails...or mine, I should say...

cut them with a meat clever right where the creases are..then rinse them off and set aside...

use your best Barilla brand angel hair pasta....

cook until tender, I am not one of those al dente girls....

the sauce goes fast so have everything prepped and ready..saute the shallots and garlic in olive oil... add the wine, (I used Sauvignon Blanc, but any white wine would be great)

here is the pasta being added., and tossed ....

Oh my, oh my this is maybe the best pasta I have ever eaten....

Cheers to Happy  !!
